brother. the homeland security committee is going to hold hearings to try to get answers. michael mccaul is the chairman of that committee and my guest now. mr. chairman, thanks so much for being back on the program. >> thanks, megyn. >> megyn: conflicting reports yesterday the senate intel committee held a hearing close-doored with fbi representatives. at least one senator was quote upon emerging from that hearing saying that russia had alerted the u.s. about tamerlan tsarnaev, in quote. multiple contacts. including at least one since october 11th. multiple contacts, not one, not two but multiple and today the fbi is pushing back on that suggesting at least the fbi, they say, was only contacted once by the russians. how do you square it? >> well, there are a lot of unanswered questions here, obviously. the fbi has informed me that only one communication took place afterwards they opened up a lead on the individual. now, it's possible that the cia could have gotten multiple intelligence leads but we don't know the answers to that at this point in time. and i think what was most troubling
received special training. texas congressman michael mccaul told "fox news sunday's" chris wallace the type of bomb used suggests the suspects had help. >> i think given the level of sophistication of this device, the fact that the pressure cooker is a signature device that goes back to pakistan, afghanistan, leads me to believe and the way they handled these devices and the trade craft leads me to believe there was a trainer and the question is where is that trainer or trainers. >> harris: steve centanni live with the news for us in washington. steve? >> continuing questions today about the bombing suspects. their family and any training or i indoctrnation they may hae received. one special focus is a trip taken by tamerlan tsarnaev to russia. and they want to know about the boys' mother and whether she could have is helped radicalize other hensons. republican congressman peter king of new york says russia had information about her that they didn't give u.s. authorities. >> they had evidence showing that the mother thought that he was sympathetic towards jihad and islamic fundamentalism. a
if the suspects acted alone. so far investigators say there is no evidence of a wider plot. congressman michael mccaul, chairs the homeland security committee, says the type of explosive devices used lead him to believe someone else trained the bombers. he wants to know more about the suspects' mother. >> i think she played a very strong role in his radicalization process i do believe she comes into the united states, she will be detained for questioning. so, i think there is a connection there. >> the real testament of whether he was radicalized or where he was radicalized is russia. we have to do a lot of investigation into russia. when he went over to russia and came back things changed. >> the father of the two bombing suspects says he postponed a trip from russia to the united states because of poor health. >>> later this morning, james everett dutschke, accused of mailing letters laced with ricin to the president, u.s. senator and judge. dutschke was arrested at his home in tupelo this weekend. elvis impersonator kevin curtis had been arrested but charges dropped due to lack of evidence. >>> pol
is candy crowley in washington with "state of the union." tell us what texas congressman michael mccaul has said. >> they have written the fbi director and head of homeland security and dni and said, listen, we want any information you have, any contacts you have had about these suspects, in particular the older brother now deceased. they are concerned that the fbi might have missed something in the process. as you know, our reporting and others that say that the russians had asked the u.s. to look into possible terrorist ties of the older brother. there you see him on the left of the screen. and in this letter that the congressman -- congressman mccaul and king wrote they brought up other past terrorist incidents that were missed. i want to read you a key line "five of these six intelligence failures have taken place since 2009. they raise the most serious questions about the efficacy of federal counterterrorism efforts." so seems to me they think there's a big hole here and they want to get into it and find out whether more should have been done, whether a red flag was raised and people m
, house homeland security chairman michael mccaul says he believes the older brother received training during his trip. security analyst and former police officer lou polumbo is in new york. cnn security analyst jim walsh joins me here in a very chilly boston at this hour. gentlemen, we've been talking about this, you know, off and on this evening about the fbi. whether they dropped the ball. and a lot of monday morning quarterbacking going on. lou, to you in new york. it's too soon to tell, but there was certainly -- the fbi will certainly have to answer some questions after the older brother took a trip to russia and no one really followed up on that, lou. >> yes, i agree with you, don. i think there are some questions that need to be answered in the proper forum. i do think director muller and administrators of the fbi that had knowledge of the heads up they received from the russian government, sfb, their intelligence group, they'll have to explain exactly what transpired here and answer as to why they did or didn't do things. >> jim, it is bloelieved, everye has said they believe
chairman michael mccaul says he believes the older brother received training during his trip. i want to bring in security expert and former police officer lou polombo. also cnn's international security analyst mr. jim walsh. he joins me here in boston. >> cold boston. >> everyone is asking me, is it that cold in boston? it is. >> you're clearly not a native new englander. you picked a bad spot. >> we're in a wind tunnel. i'll ask you since we are here talking. did the fbi drop the ball in interviewing the older tsarnaev brother? >> i mean at a very simple level, based just on the outcome you would have to say yes. he interviewed him and he went on to commit an act. but i don't think we have the full answer here yet. what was the process that they followed? the fbi interviews a ton of folks every year. only a fraction of which are actually dangerous. they interview me when i go to aroon and north korea and come back. but obviously either they -- he fell through the cracks or at the time that they were interviewing him they weren't giving him anything actionable to continue his case. >
closed. >> did the agency drop the ball? the question keeps building. congressman michael mccaul is "outfront" tonight. good to see you. >> thank you, erin. >> the fbi was aware of the recent trip to russia and found nothing derogatory but according to some reports, russia didn't stop there and as recently as november of last year, russia's secret service alerted the fbi about tamerlan's alleged contact with a militant. they said they didn't get an alert but i ask you, what did you know about whether russia warned the united states again about tsarnaev's extremist ties? >> the fbi told me that they were not warned again. let's look at the facts here. the fbi has denied they had any knowledge of his trip to russia. they had a lead opened on this individual that they closed and now we have the secretary of homeland security testifying that they knew he left and traveled to russia. when you look at the original russian intelligence wire, it basically indicates that this is a more dangerous person that may leave the united states and join an underground extremist group. so the idea w
evidence. joining me now is michael mccaul. he attended tuesday's briefing on the bombings. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having me, chuck. >> i want to start with what was the sort of sound bite of the day yesterday from janet napolitano when she said the tamerlan tsarnaev, when he traveled to russia, the m pinged. now, you were just, my understanding, you just said in another interview that you believe that homeland security never told fbi about this travel. that that's among the things you learned. tell me more about this. >> we don't know the answer to that question, but that is the question because when i was briefed by the fbi, they told me they had no knowledge of his overseas trip to the chechen region and when the secretary then testifies and said they got pinged. that there was a flag that went up that did indicate he was traveling to russia and to the region. that's very important because this russian intelligence communique warns about this individual travels outside of the united states to join extremists underground groups, and so, you know, we talked a
michael mccaul on "the daily rundown." >> we talked a lot about connecting the dots and stovepipes after 9/11 and here we are 12 years later and the fact remains it's still not working. >> joining me right now is independent senator of maine, angus king, member of the intelligence committee and at yesterday's fbi briefing. it's good to have you with me this morning. can you hear me? senator? >> we'll go back to the senator in a second. you were tracking down a new lead. something you can reveal now or something you want to wait on? >> we've been trying to get a better understanding of what it was that was back and forth between the u.s. and russia over their initial tip to the u.s. or their initial report to the u.s. that the older brother, tamerlan, had become radicalized and that the u.s. should look into it. so here's our understanding of the sequence. it's basically what we have been told with a few additional modifications. in early 2011 the russians go to the fbi and say we believe he's becoming radicalized. you should look into it. the fbi opens a threat assessment. they check their
, including congressman michael mccaul, chairman of the homeland security committee. let's listen to him. >> when i was briefed by the fbi, they told me they had no knowledge of his overseas trip to the chechen region. when, in fact, the secretary then testifies and says that they got pinged, that there was a flag that went up that did indicate that he was traveling to russia and to the chechen region. you know, we talked a lot about connecting the dots and stove pipes after 9/11. and here we are 12 years later, and the fact remains that it's still not -- it's not working. >> pete, this is so difficult because we're looking for institutional blame here. i understand how the political game is played, if you will. even when the stakes are this high, it's still somewhat of a contest. but i am fascinated, maybe this isn't your cantor, maybe you're not covering this, how could the fbi or the department of homeland security determine when a person transited across the rubicon from someone with very hot ideas, very jihadist views, into someone who is building bombs? >> well -- >> there's no evi
republican congressman michael mccaul questions if it could compromise u.s. security. >> the saudis have been very helpful with intelligence, but mistakes can be made in the vetting process, it's not perfect. all it takes is one to get through to cause a major disaster in the united states with an incoming flight into the u.s. that's why i want to prevent this and get an answer. >> reporter: the department of homeland security declined our request for an interview. the agency has pointed out there are stringent security measures for global entry saying passengers pass through a rigorous background check, vetted for criminal violations, their phroeupl is verified and they get an inch person interview. they point out that the government gets more information and they say the state department checks when passengers get a advice a. other critics say when it comes to saudi arabia it's not right. >> the fact that saudi arabia has got even, you know, a jump to the head of the line in terms of the global entry program, and gained jurisdiction over intelligence vetting of visa applicants, way ahead of

after the 9/11d a lot investigation. jon: congressman michael mccaul who is on the homeland security committee, in fact he chairs that committee was on "fox news sunday" over the weekend saying that it doesn't look to him like these two guys acted alone, that they had some training or some help. how much help are the russians being in helping us look into this? do you know? >> reporter: to hear the chairman of the intelligence committee, mike rogers talk about it, not much. in fact they have not been helpful at all, to hear him skreut. i describe it. the russians need to step up to the plate here and provide better information, in his words. there are some reports about the russians and what they may have in this. u.s. officials are now trying to get to the bottom of what the russians had on both tamerlan and the mother. the question is about how many other people may be involved. the mother is obviously a person that they would want to question. investigators would want to question. you talk to terrorism experts. counterterrorism experts and catherine herridge has done great reporti
concerns about congressman michael mccaul, who sent a letter to secretary napolitano and james clapper and to the head of the f bi, saying that he is the fifth person since 9/11 to participate in terror attacks, despite being under investigation by the fbi. is there anything that was missed there? something that could have been done better. >> have you to understand that the fbi agents are limited by attorney general guidelines. the fbi doesn't decide who to investigate, always. the attorney general of the united states does. if you look at what happened here, the older brother actually went to russia long after the fbi talked to him and based on what i know about the interview, there is nothing in there that would cause them to conduct further investigation because they don't have a crystal ball. if the russian government had additional information, they should have brought them to them. i think one thing we can consider -- what can be done? we need to look at the mosques. there is a very radical mosque in the neighborhood where one of the brothers attended. we need to think, should w
they got to this point. they're turning their attention overseas in this hunt. here is congressman michael mccaul, chairman of the house homeland security committee on this. listen. >> you can't understand this case until you understand where they came from is chechnya. the chechen rebels are some of the fiercest jihadist warriors out there. they have a relationship and affiliation with al qaeda in pakistan, in afghanistan. martha: so the investigation is focusing on two areas primarily in russia. the muslim origin of chechnya and next store dagestan where family members lived over years. doug mckelway is live in washington. what are you hearing about questions of the younger tsnaraev now? >> reporter: the concern is how long can he be questioned before the public safety runs out, most say 48 hours. once under miranda he is under no obligation to cooperate with authorities. >> remember the number one goal right here is to get inside his head and get whatever intelligence he has with any operatives in the united states to protect the homeland and protect americans inside the united states.
